The Philadelphia Continuum of Care (CoC) Board is the primary decision making body of the CoC and is responsible for approval of all CoC policies, procedures, and funding decisions. Decisions are made with input from the CoC Advisory Committee, Standing Subcommittees, and the Office of Supportive Housing.
The CoC Board must represent the relevant organizations and projects serving homeless subpopulations, such as persons with substance use disorders; persons with HIV/AIDS; veterans; the chronically homeless; families with children; unaccompanied youth; the seriously mentally ill; and victims of domestic violence. One board member may represent the interests of more than one homeless subpopulation, and the board must represent all subpopulations within the CoC to the extent that someone is available and willing to represent that subpopulation to the board.
The Philadelphia CoC Board consists of 17 members, of which 15 are voting members and 2 are non-voting ex-officio members. Below is a copy of the 2014-2015 Board Roster, 2014-2015 CoC Advisory Committee, and a copy of the Board Meeting minutes from March 18, 2015.
